Investing in tomorrow's royalties today


Knowledge is Power

Should you sell your mineral rights and/or royalty interests? It depends upon a variety of factors in your financial situation, such as your desire for investment diversification, risk tolerance, estate planning and immediate or future cash flow needs. Knowing the fair market value of your mineral, surface and water assets gives you the power to make informed decisions – from whether to make a big purchase (like a house, a vehicle or college for the kids) to continuing to hold on to your property. The point is: by knowing the value of your asset, you’ll know your options.

You Can Sell

Cash in on your mineral rights and other assets, and you could get a substantial lump sum payment. No more dealing with fluctuating royalty payments and the other risks and complexities involved in ownership, such as future non-development, a depleting reservoir, higher tax rates and falling commodity prices. You will have a cash infusion you can devote to whatever your family needs.

Selling your mineral rights may also deliver tax advantages. If you’ve had title to minerals for a long enough period, a sale of them would be subject to long-term capital gains tax, which is significantly lower than the upper levels of ordinary income tax rates you’d be paying on royalties.

Of course, you also have the option to gain the benefits of selling and retain the benefits of ownership, if you decide to sell a portion of your mineral rights or other assets.

By knowing the value of your mineral interest, you’ll know your options.

How Much Should You Rely on Future Royalties?

Is it better to hold onto your mineral rights for the long term? Or would you be better off selling now, rather than holding? It's a complicated decision, and you need to do what’s best for you and your family long term. Expedition can help you decide. Your mineral resources will naturally diminish over time. One way to think it through is to project the value of your mineral resources in the future. If you’re currently receiving royalty payments, we will use our Future Royalty Calculator to give you a rough idea of how much you can expect your royalties to go down.

Hold or Sell?

If you’re thinking about returns for future generations, consider how Permian Basin production typically declines versus the relative certainty of return if you were to take the money you receive for selling your asset and invest it in interest-bearing bonds.


Even when you hold your rights and try to monetize them, there are risks. For example, what happens when you work with an oil company that doesn’t do what it says it will do?
